On Oct 3rd,My 13th month old bit into a piece of toast with peanut butter on it and had an immediate rection.(she was at daycare) watery eyes and nose, hives covering her entire head and face swollen lips,eyes and cheeks, lethargic. MY doctor is concerned that this was so severe that her next one could be fatal. As parents we are in disbelief, She had had the odd peanut butter cookie before with no reaction. Weird or what? MY cousin's daughter has Pa but she vomits when she comes into contact with a peanut. Is this a common reaction?I have an epipen for my daughter, but I am so worried about her. She's so young and she'll eat anything. People are always trying to give her food! I feel like putting a sign on her that says. I have pa-don't feed me. Help!!
What steps should I start with?? Is there a list of peanut free foods? Can I trust labels, Etc. Any info or support would be great
Thanks Julie
